Students in Lebanon burn pictures of Feltman & Bush
Whassup with this Jeffrey Feltman pick? Not looking good I'm afraid, it may be that Israel had a hand in this pick, keep reading! Where was he working before Obama made this appointment? " his most recent assignment was at the U.S. Consulate General in Jerusalem, where he served first as Deputy (August 2001-November 2002) and then as Acting Principal Officer (November 2002 to December 2003)."and this:
In a speech following the Israeli operation in Lebanon in 2006, the "Secretary-General" of Hizbollah, Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah, dubbed Fouad Siniora's government in Lebanon as Feltman's Government. Nasrallah's label stressed what Hizbullah sees as Feltman's deep influence on the Lebanese government's decisions. The title of "Feltman's Government" has since been widely used among several opposition parties in Lebanon whenever referring to Siniora's government.
Uh Oh, and there’s more icky stuff below:
Mass Demonstrations against the US backed Lebanese Government
The Western media, which often downplays the size of public rallies and anti-war demonstrations, confirms that "hundreds of thousands" of people from all sectors of Lebanese society gathered in Beirut in anti-government demonstrations, demanding the resignation of the US-Israeli supported government of Prime Minister Fouad Siniora.
The Beirut government is taking orders directly from the US embassy. The Siniora government has allowed the deployment of NATO forces on Lebanese territory under the pretext of a UN sponsored peace-keeping operation. NATO warships under German command are stationed off the country's Eastern Mediterranean coastline. NATO has a military cooperation agreement with Israel.
The banners read "Down with Feltman's government," in reference to US ambassador Jeffrey Feltman:
"We want a national unity government," "We want a clean government"
Police source estimated the crowd at 800,000 people, almost half the population of the Beirut metropolitan area. Organizers said it was much larger. (Associated Press).
The significance of the rally has been casually dismissed. According to the BBC, it was organized by Hezbollah and its so-called "pro-Syrian allies".
The rally had little to do with Syria. It demanded the resignation of an illegal government, which supports the interests of US and Israel.
All sectors of Lebanese society are demanding the resignation of the government. A majority of the Christian Maronite community is firmly behind the protest movement: "I call on the prime minister and his ministers to resign" said Michel Aoun: "I wish that the prime minister and his ministers were among us today, not hiding behind barbed wire and army armored carriers.
He who has his people behind him does not need barbed wire," Emile Lahoud, the country's president, has also confirmed in that the Siniora government has violated the country's constitution: "This government is no longer legal because it is not representative of all the country's religions,'' he said, following the resignation of five cabinet ministers from Hezbollah, Amal as well as one Christian loyal to President Emile Lahoud.
So, is it going to be business as usual in the Middle East with the US picking and chooseing for other countires who governs them? Because, Gee, this gas worked SO well in the past....................NOT! Remember the Shah of Iran? After that the country went to what it is now. Time for the US to STOP attempting to control other countries, let them pick their own leaders and let the US and Israel deal with them. Attemtping to control governments has been a huge part of what has turned worldwide public opinion AGAINST America, and when America and Israel work TOGETHER on this, well, no good can come of it for America. Hey Obama?? Where's my "change"
